Tonight: The clouds will continue to move east this evening and a mostly clear night is expected for all locations along the Western Slope. As a result, some colder low temperatures are expected for several locations. A Freeze Warning is in place from 3 am until 8 am Tuesday for Montrose, Delta and Hotchkiss (Gunnison & Uncompahgre River Valley). These listed locations will experience mid 20s around sunrise. Elsewhere, low 30° temperatures are expected. Owners of sensitive plants should take precautions as orchard owners are already in the loop with these temperatures and have/are doing so. The wind will slow down tonight and remain as such into Friday morning.
Tomorrow:: A drier pattern will settle in for Thursday with better temperatures into the warmer upper 60s and low 70s.
Extended: Friday also has the warmth, but the winds will pick up later as an approaching weekend storm system is poised to deliver more wind, rain and snow along with cold temperatures.
